Monday, Monday ... Where does the time go?
Reading is going well these days! I finished Diary of a Wimpy Kid #4: Dog Days by Jeff Kinney last week as well as Fables #6: Homelands by Bill Willingham. I am currently reading Acts of Faith by Eboo Patel. It is actually a book that I started years ago and finally picked up to finish. I'm not sure why it took me so long because it truly is a fascinating and easy read. What's next on the list? Probably Blackout by Mira Grant. I just cannot ignore this book any longer! I have to know how the trilogy ends!!
- 2012 Fairy Tale Challenge (10 of 12)
- 2012 Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge (32 of 70)
- 2012 Off the Shelf Challenge (13 of 30)
- 2012 Audiobook Challenge (0 of 12)
- What's in a Name 5 Challenge (2 of 6)
The first few challenges I am pretty happy with, but the last two I really need to get working on. I have had a difficult time getting back into audio books for some reason, but I have picked up one I started earlier this year (Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson) in the hopes of getting back into the audio groove. I guess we will see how it goes. And, I think I can finish the last one as long as I pick my books wisely.
Writing is going slowly, but it is at least present! I have a couple of reviews written, but many more to go. I am trying to work on these a little each day. For some reason, I feel like I have to catch up on these before I can start my fun writing again. I'm not sure why, but I plan on working hard this week to get all caught up and everything scheduled. The good news is that I finally posted my first review in almost three months this last week. I consider that progress!
I am going to limit this area to just two items . . .
First is the winners of my blogiversary giveaway: Anita, Anastasia, and Sherri!! Congratulations ladies!! Please do not forget to email me within 48 hours or I will be drawing new winners!
Second and far from least is the OLYMPICS!!!! In case you are living in a hole, the Olympics are currently playing in the background as I write this and I must really get back to watching them before getting some sleep. I am definitely cheering on Team USA, but I am really enjoying watching any and all of the athletes. They simply amaze me and I love seeing all of their hard work pay off. My personal favorite sports to watch are volleyball, gymnastics, and swimming, but I am happy watching any and all events! I know that there has been a lot of controversy surrounding the opening ceremony, particularly what was aired here in the USA; however, from what I saw, I was truly fascinated with my favorites being the literary references and spotlights. What a beautiful touch to an amazing night!!
I'm off to watch some more of the games and read on the commercial breaks!! Have a great week!!
Tell Me: What are you reading this week? Or, is your reading suffering as you watch your favorite Olympic games? If so, what are your favorite games to watch?
